Leon HS Students Present at UIL Student Activities Conference

On November 9, 2013, two Leon High School Speech Team members were asked to present at the UIL Student Activities Conference hosted by Sam Houston State University. The goal of the conference is to introduce students from across the area to each of the UIL Academic events. Our students were asked to provide demonstrations as models for students to observe.

Maranda Bailey spoke to a crowd of 60+ coaches and students demonstrating the basics of extemporaneous speaking. One session later Cody Garcia among three other students demonstrated Poetry and Prose interpretation. The assembly of more than 100 coaches and students watch presentations and judges critiques. Cody's program about life just before the Information Age was the crowd favorite.
